Even though we have yet to hear a firm release date for the PlayStation Vita, the graphics pushing handheld from Sony, the console has already begun to form a stellar line-up of games to accompany it. Franchises like Uncharted and LittleBigPlanet, properties with very close ties to Sony, have already proven they can work in the handheld space, but isn’t going to be just Sony providing the content.
Adding its name to the already exciting list of Vita titles is Marvel vs. Capcom 3, the popular fighting game that released earlier this year. Perhaps to follow in the success of Street Fighter IV 3D Edition on the 3DS, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is going to scratch that fighting game itch for Vita gamers on the go.
While this news only comes by way of an Amazon France product listing it seems entirely probable — especially considering Capcom is trying to keep the MvC buzz going with the recently announced Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Whether or not this Vita version of the game is the Ultimate edition is unknown, if, of course, the posting is legitimate.
A lot of what is intriguing gamers the most about the Vita is its ability to seamlessly bridge the home experience of a console with the portability of a handheld. Capcom already has begun exploring that idea with Street Fighter X Tekken, so first implementing it with Marvel vs. Capcom 3 seems like a no-brainer.
On top of that, the many different accoutrement that accompany the Vita — things like rear touchpad and gyroscope — could provide opportunities to help this version of the game stand out from your standard console edition.
To find out if Marvel vs. Capcom 3 really is coming to the Vita stick tuned for all of the handheld’s announced launch line-up and any news as it develops. For now, though, it’s best to file this Amazon France listing in the rumor category since by the time the Vita releases in the US, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 may very well be over a year old.
